Modelling Ireland's roadmap to netzero

The impact of the built environment, its operation, and to a greater extent its construction are currently poorly quantified. The high-level national climate emissions inventories produced by the EPA do not relate data directly to the construction sector. This makes it difficult to define policy for the built environment – a key sector to target if we are to mitigate climate change. 

The draft report is available online on the IGBC website. In this stage of the project BIACE will investigate scenarios and strategies to get our built environment on a pathway to net-zero by 2050, and firstly meet our 2030 targets.
